This Pinot Noir blends grapes from California’s premier Pinot growing regions, 51% Monterey County, 28% Santa Barbara County & 21% Sonoma County. A very rich and plush mouth-feel with fully ripe berry flavors. This beauty needs at least 15 minutes to open to its full potential. The opening act is an appealing nose of blackberry, blueberry and spice. The palate is then treated to a wine with balanced acidity offering flavors of blueberry, blackberry and dark cherry with notes of spice and cola on the long finish. As it opens, subtle notes reminiscent of blueberry pie entice. Buy This Wine
